Met Chief Bernard Hogan-Howe pledges to listen
The new Met Police Commissioner said he was listening to officers before drawing up plans to improve the force.
Bernard Hogan-Howe said he wanted to introduce more automatic numberplate readers and areas such as procurement could be improved.
Speaking to Victoria Derbyshire on BBC Radio 5 live he said he was visiting London's 32 command units to ask staff what they would do to improve the Met.
He will announce a list of 10 things for the new year.
Automatic numberplate readers scan the numberplates of passing vehicles and allow officers to identify illegal road users.
Mr Hogan-Howe said while driving offences "may get ignored", the police have found, for example, that 80% of people with no car insurance are criminals.
He said: "If we take away their cars we are stopping the mobility of burglars and robbers."
He added that the Met's procurement process could be improved.
A spokesman for the Met said that like any big organisation there could well be ways to increase efficiencies in this area, for example by a central office supplying each borough with office supplies.
Mr Hogan-Howe added that he was already getting some very clear examples of how to cut through the "permafrost of bureaucracy".
The Met needs to make savings to fill an £85m black hole in next year's budget.
